Happy owner of 24 Hot Rock sets. Hot Rock is very good and will continue to be. I found that you were a pleasure to deal with, your customer service/ product delivery and the punctual delivery of my order to be excellent. From my end the feedback is nothing but positive. Great to hear from you again.

I purchased a set of four Hotrocks for my Husband’s Birthday Present over 12 months ago, as we had just got back from a Holiday in New Zealand where we had experienced them at a Pub.  We thought that the idea was excellent and so once back home I started searching high and low for a domestic version back home in Australia.  I found through a Google Search Hot Rock Dining International.  I contacted them via email and got a quick response about the Domestic version of the Hotrocks and within a couple of weeks I had them.  We think that the Hot Rocks are the best way to cook our Steaks and all other kinds of meats.  We even cook Corn on the Cob with them.  We tend to use them every night for a week sometimes.  We think that they are so good that we are looking in the near future to purchase another four Hot Rocks so that we can have more family & Friends over to enjoy the experience.  Thank you Hot Rock Dining International - Excellent Product, Excellent Service.

Kind regards

I am writing to express my delight of being an owner of 08 “Domestic Hotrocks”.
My husband, daughters (aged 13 and 10) and I absolutely love using them. After trying my first hot rock meal at a restaurant, I decide to investigate the possibility of owning my own, when I came across your website. I realise just how easy they are! Buy your meat and/or seafood, prepare some vegetables or a salad, heat the rocks and away you go! (leaving more time for socialising) and your guests will enjoy the novelty of cooking their own meal to their liking! (When I mention to my daughters that we are using the hotrocks for dinner, the response is always “oh, cool!”)

I love serving “Hotrocks” to my family and because I only need to prepare vegetables or a salad, I find they are quick and easy! Cleaning them afterwards is just as easy, just soak the rocks in hot water and they wipe clean, it’s as simple as that!

Honestly, if you and your family are always too busy for a good wholesome meal, I strongly suggest you try hotrocks, they are “simply the best!”

Kind regards,

I would like to thank you for your excellent service. I use Hot Rocks with my family and when we have our friends around for dinner. It is a crowd pleaser and as you know everyone has a chance to cook their meal to the exact way they like it whether it be beef, chicken, lamb , fish. It is a fantastic way to entertain. I am also excited about the cold rock and look forward to purchasing these in the near future.

We've just about finished our food and I couldn't wait to let you know how good the food was with our new Hot Rock setting.
Just fantastic everyone had their steak just how they like it. We cooked fresh veggies on the rock during the meal and they were perfectly cooked.
The Hot Rocks cooking time lasted more than 30mins plus easily, more than enough time (and most importantly) talk as we eat.
Thanks again, and I will recommend these to who ever I can.

We have been immensely pleased with the purchase of our domestic hot rocks and have a few other local producers who would like to purchase some.

Being a happy owner of 8 sets of domestic hot rocks is an understatement, we just love our hot rocks, being a working mum it saves me a lot of time out of kitchen preparing meals, we have tried game meats on the rocks as well cooked exactly how we like it and every bite is just as mouthwatering as the first. Ideal for when I have friends and family, bought some for my friends for Christmas, great presents – healthy choice without even knowing you are eating healthy…..perfect way to enjoy a local cow! Thank You, Hot Rock, you’ve made my work load lighter in the kitchen and the best thing is that EVERYBODY in the family loves dining on the hot rock.

We have been very happy with our hot rocks.  It is convenient, and I find my daughter willing to try all sorts of meat and veg combinations when I try something new on the rocks.  They are definitely a no-fuss, no mess way of dining for us, we love it.

Well I must say I have been the talk of the town entertaining with the new addition of the Hot Rocks to my kitchen. I have found the best heating method was to place them in my hooded BBQ for 35 minutes.

Your customer service has been second to none with communication during the delivery time being very comforting. Packaging was certainly at the standard where it needed to be & the additional follow up email containing a great range of cooking ideas along with great tips just finished a great shopping experience off.

I have noticed several restaurants on the Sunshine Coast now using this method of dinning to deliver a great experience so you’re on the right track & good luck in the future.

The Hot Rock experience has been fantastic!
Living out in a Rural area does not give you much chance of going out to restaurants etc but now with our new Hot Rocks our family and close friends love dining with us!!!

Its so easy to use now my partner loves making dinner now for us as little work needs to be done!!!
Cooking on the stones is a wonderful way of cooking and everyone can cook their own steak to how they want it! The Hot Rocks was a wonderful Birthday Idea! Once again Thank you.

Kind Regards

I must say it was a pleasure to have received my second order of 12 hot rock sets.
We love entertaining here at our family home and with two children and my wife and mother in law here, we often have hot rock family dinners.  Being 1 of 9 from an Italian family my biggest problem has been that we could only have seven other guests in order to entertain with hot rocks. That why I bought the other dozen meaning now I can have 24 of us enjoying the experience.

When I only had the 12  rocks and had more people I would often have a sharing system going where we would cook seafood or other small entree’s together then share from a platter in the middle of the table. That worked well but now with the addition of a double deck pizza oven and the extra rocks our pizza can be our entree and the rocks will be where they belong as the main attraction.

Every time I bring out the rocks for new guests they are absolutely thrilled with the experience, and have invited themselves back for more. I think my sister was the first to buy her own after having dined here and as you know I have let others know of where to get their own.

It’s now been over two years since I bought my first set of hot rocks from you and they are still a biggie at meal time with my own family. I used to always cook up an Italian storm when we had big parties here and they can number from ten to over thirty. These big cook up entail an enormous amount of preparation even from the day before, but with the hot rocks you don’t have to worry much at all.  Just prepare a salad and or the veggies and your guests do all the cooking themselves. My Italian cooking has always been ok but I could never really cook a good steak, until now that is, and all can cook just the way they like and the chef never gets into trouble.

It is really funny when I have some guests here with the rocks because when I used to lift the BBQ lid[ that before the pizza oven came along] I would tell them that the rocks were not ready yet as they were still too hard to eat. Many just couldn’t let their imaginations see what was about to unfold.

Though seafood is a favorite of mine I still find it hard to choose between a filet mignon or a thick piece of Atlantic salmon. And you know I often have both on offer and when entertaining it is really easy to have any meat or seafood as a combination so guests can choose what they prefer and many like me have a bit of each.

Now I have it and would and do recommend it to everyone to try, it really is an exceptional way to dine the no fuss way and know you can’t mess it up. Feel free to let anyone know about my great satisfaction with hot rock dining and hope the best for the future.

PS. OH  how can I forget the Cold Rocks, they also work a treat  after dinner with the kids as well as the oldies. No more running ice cream and you can add in all the things you like to have at desert time, from chocolate to  sweets and fruit. A great incentive to eat your veggies.

We absolutely love our hot rocks. We had two daughters who refused to eat steak and now I am begged almost nightly if we can have hot rock steak for dinner and they even want the left over extras from everyone else ( not that there normally is any).

They have been a great investment and a very easy way to enjoy a delicious home meal.

Thank you again,

We are certainly enjoying our hot rock experience, we typically have hot rock once per week, we love it!. We are very happy with them. As per your instructions we do find our oven is only just good enough to heat the rocks, even if they are left in for 2 hours with the oven on full the rocks sizzle just long enough for us to finish our meals.

I have not tried heating the rocks in the BBQ as we make do with the oven only and really felt we have not felt the need to use the BBQ to this point. Should you wish to use my comments please feel free.

Many thanks, we are very satisfied!

The Hot Rocks have been a great success. We have a set of 10. We have tried heating in the kitchen oven and the BBQ. We found the BBQ to be the best bet. We had friends over to enjoy a meal with us and the Hot Rocks made entertaining a breeze. Something different and fun. I will need to add to my collection soon so I will keep in touch.

My husband and I had a delightful meal on our hot rocks a couple of evenings ago. We kept it pretty simple-thin slices of fresh fish. calamari, marinaded steak slices, lightly steamed snow peas, carrots, butternut, mushrooms, Chinese cabbage and a couple of Asian dipping sauces.

We heated our domestic hot  rocks in the our oven for 2.5hrs @ 250 degrees centigrade and everything cooked perfectly.

We certainly haven’t been disappointed with our hot rock experience.

We both would like to thank you for looking after us while buying the Hot Rock Sets.

From the time we contacted you at Hot Rock Dining International we had all our questions responded to promptly and with the all the information we needed to decide if to purchase or not.

We did indeed decide to purchase the Hot Rocks dinners sets and they arrived packed perfectly with no damage to our sets.

After reading the simple instructions we cooked our first dinner on the hot rocks and it was like being in a resturant but at home.  Look forward to having our family and friends over now for a dinner party with a twist as most have not heard to the Hot Rocks cooking.  Also trying the other recipies that are in the information we received and also experimenting with our own.

We are looking forward to many fun nights using the Hot Rocks!

We have very recently held our first Hot Rock Dining experience with a group of friends and the evening was a huge success.

The Rocks retained heat for approximately 35 minutes and enabled every Diner to cook their meat to their own desired perfection. Such a clean and healthy way to cook a meal with no use of oils or other fats.

Normally entertaining can be exhausting for the host due to the time taken to prepare food. Using the Hot Rocks meant my food preparation was cut down to a minimum and I found I could thoroughly enjoy the whole day leading up to our guests arriving and the evening itself as I had much less to worry about not mention a lot more energy.

We have another Rock party organized already and plan to have many many more.  I have no hesitation in recommending you to our family, friends and strangers, you have seamlessly guided us through this new experience and we commend you and your team for the customer service and professionalism we have received.

Many Thanks,

I bought the Hot Rock Dining Set for my husband as a birthday gift.  He loves to cook and enjoys a good steak.

We have had steaks on hot rocks before in restaurants, in comparison, these Hot Rocks are equal to what you will find in a good restaurant and taste amazing.  It is better to use thicker cuts of meat, we heated our rocks up in the webber and it was brilliant,  It’s a very social way to eat amongst family and friends, and very easy to use.   We bought four sets and will buy more to accommodate hungry guests for dinner.

I first tasted hot rock cooking in Melbourne a few months back. 

I loved it. I'm a single dad with 3 kids, 19, 16 and 13. Keeping them entertained, food wise is very difficult and can be very expensive if you take them out for dinner often. 

Hot Rocks brought a new excitement to eating for the kids. 

My oldest is vegetarian. So she had salmon. The other kids and myself had steak. Thinly slides vegetables cooking on another rock, mushroom, capsicum etc...

Quite simply,a fabulous interactive treat. Best chat we've had around a dinner table for a while. 
Cooking is about the experience... The experience was truly a memorable one.
